I do not know about you, but to me, this sounds like a player who already has one foot out the door! 

Myles Turner has been the anchor for the Pacers defensively through the years, but they barely utilize him on offense and could look to get a considerable return for him on the open market. With that said, let’s take a look at three trade packages for Indiana to consider involving Turner.
